2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus and Thompson. Hazy pale yellow golden color, full sized white head that lasts for quite a while. Aroma is lightly malts, some hops but also a bit sweaty. Taste lightly malts, lightly hops, hayish, only a hint of bitter. Average body and carbonation. Drinkable but not very good imo.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a soft golden yellow color with a nice transparency about it allowing some light carbonation to be seen rising to fill a one finger white foamy head that dissipated in a nice rocky sort of way. Thick messy lacing stuck to the glass nicely.
The smell had a dry piney to speckled sprucy citrus, fresh and bright thorough and a light grassiness.
The taste was sweet and tried to a balance a dry sort of bitterness which actually came out more in the finish. The aftertaste was sticky sweet.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable aspect to it. The carbonation seemed to be a bit smoother than other APA’s, still good.
Overall, I say this was a wonderful APA. The dry hopping did this beer well.

Bottle. Pours clear light yellow. Doesn’t taste like a traditional pale ale, but more like a light pilsner. There is a slight bitterness. Very light mouthfeel, and watered down,

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery - Pours hazy pale yellow with a white head. The aroma has doughy pils malt, spicy hops and herbs. It has a medium smooth body with soft carbonation. The flavor starts off with nice semi-dry pils malt, spice, herbs and some citrus. The finish dries out a bit and has tangerine and pepper. Solid pale ale.
